TBH I'm wondering if we shouldn't just revert that patch (and the
subsequent fix attempts).  It was not a major feature and I'm thinking
we have better things to do right now than try to fix the multiple
logic holes it evidently has.  The author's certainly welcome to try
again with a more carefully thought-through patch for 9.5.
